Christmas Cottage Swap #2


Because these are so easy to put together I decided to make another one. I wanted a night sky so I added a darker blue fabric and a glittery white on the roof top to resemble snow. I think it looks a bit plain and needs some bling.
The cool thing about this cottage is that the fabric is very old, it belonged to my friend's Sheilas grandmother and it is a Mexican Christmas flower design. I love the look of it.
I may make 1 more block and make it into a wall hanging for the holidays since I really do not need to make a full size Christmas quilt. I am sewing the binding on Pat Sloans I believe quilt and that is about all the wall space I will have for holiday quilts.

The block is very pretty but I think it is missing something.
